Today Microsoft has given permissions to share screenshots of products in development. Here's some from Basel, which will likely be the first one to be released. Some info:

- The scenery will be the first one to be released for MSFS 2020 ( O'Hare V2 will likely be the next one ), because it's our latest release, so it was already designed to be 100% PBR, and will use native capabilities of the new sim when required, like sloped runways, animated jetways, new types of glass reflections and realtime ambient occlusion.

- Due to the very efficient lighting engine of MSFS 2020, the night lighting is completely dynamic. Almost every lamp post or fixture in the scenery got a DL. We were unable to measure any effects on performance so far, this is likely due to the sim using Deferred Rendering, which allows for a far higher number of DL before fps will be affected.

- About fps, we don't seem to notice much difference compared to the default airport for the same area.

Umberto,

Any idea whether Airport Facilities are still controlled by *bgl OR it's completely new structure (*)

(*) I'm thinking forward about ADE future capabilities within MSFS2020

Looking very much forward to this! I have learned to fly on this airport many many years ago. Is there any estimated date for the release?

It's not very far, but we'll released KORD first, and LFSB next.

Since this statement was made two further sceneries have been released (Key West & Vancouver)...

Seeing that the original statement was that LFSB was going to be the FIRST scenery to be released for MSFS I am starting to loose faith in FSDT...

FSDT is just one guy that does everything. Key West and Vancouver are NOT made by the same author as LFSB. We said LSFB was *likely* the first scenery, but that doesn't mean anything, if we have something else ready, we should stop it "just" because we said LFSB MIGHT have come first.

It will surely come before the end of the month.

We are still doing the finishing touches ( and improve the scenery along the way, did many additions compared to the P3D version ) so, it's not going to be out this weekend ( I'm posting this on Sunday night...), but it's going to be a few days more.
